A short walk or bus ride from the centre of the city, get up
close and personal with one of the world’s most precious metals. Join a guided
talk and witness gold being heated to molten and then poured and transformed
into a bar of gleaming solid gold.
The Perth Mint lays claim to the largest and most valuable
gold coin in the world; the Australian Kangaroo One Tonne Gold Coin measuring
80cm wide and more than 12cm deep.
View the array of coins, wafers, crystals and gold nuggets;
including the second largest gold nugget in existence weighing 25.5 kilograms.
Don’t leave without a keepsake of your visit from the gift
shop gleaming with jewellery, WA’s prized argyle diamonds and Kailis pearls, and
all things gold.
Since it’s opening in 1899, the walls are quite literally
lined with gold dust, and with any luck, it might rub off.
